Weydemann Bros. produces films and series for the German and international market. We are guided by the vision of an equally political and entertaining filmic story-telling. For us, film is always a critical observation of the times and the world in which we live. Our goal is to make many people laugh and cry with our films and to make them reflect. We develop projects together with authors and directors and build long-term creative partnerships.
Films by Weydemann Bros. have won over 100 prizes, among them 8 German Film Awards, the Berlinale Silver Bear and the European Film Award. The films have been selected as official entry to the Oscars Best Foreign Language Film, have been preselected for numerous German Film Awards and were screened on international film festivals worldwide. 2019 Weydemann Bros. was awarded as one of Variety’s „10 producers to watch“ at the Cannes film festival and won the Bavarian Film Award for best producers.
We are members of the German Producer’s Association (VDFP), the Film and Media Association NRW, the German-French Film Academy, the German Film Academy and the European Film Academy.
